GenesisPlus Laser

 

 

Get clear nails now!

Using a GenesisPlus laser you can find relief from onychomycosis, more commonly known as nail fungus.

Nail fungus, is a common condition estimated to affect up to 10% of the population worldwide. It can cause nails to become yellow or discolored. As the infection advances, the nail can become thick, brittle and seperate from the nail bed. It can cause pain when wearing shoes or walking.

What Can You Expect

The GenisisPlus procedure involves passing the laser beam over the infected nails and surrounding skin. Your physician will repeat this several times until enough energy has reached the nail bed. Your nail will feel warm during the procedure.

Procedure Time: A single session takes approximately 20 minutes for 5-10 nails. Procedure times will vary, so please ask your doctor for information

Number of Sessions; Most patients show improvement after one session. The required number of sessions will vary depending on how severly each nail is infected.

Before the Procedure: It is important to remove all nail polish and decorations the day before the procedure.

During the Procedure: Most patients describe the procedure as being very comfortable. Some may experience a small hot pinch that resolves quickly.

After the Procedure: Immediately following the procedure your nail may feel warm for a few minutes. The majority of patients can reumes normal activites immediately.

Insurance

Laser treatment for nail fungus is still considered an experiemental procedure, therefore it is not covered by your health insurance. Please call our office for more information on pricing.

The GenesisPlus Laser is also used for many other treatments including:

  • Scar Tissue

Ask your doctor if GenesisPlus is right for you!
